After issue investigation, we discovered the root cause of this issue is “Auxiliary power supply” J5 connector . Intel® Server SC5295BRP chassis uses PS Alert signal (3rd cord) and the board powers up. If customer disconnects this cable (3rd cable in the power cord connector) system works normally. According to our investigation, PSU in BASE chassis doesn't use this signal cord. Root Cause “Auxiliary power supply” J5 connector on Intel® Server SC5295BRP chassis power supply unit Corrective Action / Resolution Please do not connect “Auxiliary power supply” J5 connector on Intel® Server SC5295BRP chassis power supply unit to Intel® Server Board SE7320EP2 board.
